Having a warrant out means that you can be arrested anywhere at anytime. The best advice you can get here is to consult with an attorney and make arrangements to turn yourself in. That would certainly bode better for you then say if the cops give you a lift to court.
I generally agree with the previous answer. Although there can be a time delay between issuance of the warrant in VA and the warrant becoming active in other states' or the federal systems, a walk to court with an attorney is always preferable to a ride to jail from a police officer.
Short answer; get an attorney to help you surrender on the warrant.
It appears that your child support case is being litigated in VA. I agree with my colleagues that the short answer is to get the warrant quashed through counsel. However, you may also negotiate a settlement with the State prosecuting the child support case or the opposing party, so that you may present the joint settlement to the Court when you request the warrant to be quashed and the contempt proceedings withdrawn.
You should consult an experienced Child Support/Criminal Lawyer in your jurisdiction. This response does not constitute/create an attorney-client relationship. Moreover, this answer is informational only and cannot be construed as a legal advise.
